It's the MOST GRATEFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

I love NOVEMBER!
Not only is it my birthday month,
(Woot...Woot!)
but it's the one time of the year we get to just...
BE THANKFUL!
Here's a fun way to display what you are thankful for as a family.
It's a Gratitude Banner!
Here's what you'll need to do:
Print...Laminate...Cut...
and Attach the banner pieces to a ribbon!
You can use hot glue, or colored staples to attach the
banner pieces to the ribbon.
Leave extra ribbon on each of the sides so you can
hang it up.
Each day have each of the members of your family write what
they are grateful for on one of the fall leaves which are
included in the Give Thanks Banner Packet!
The leaves can be clipped to the banner
using glitter covered clothes pins.
I used the medium sized clothes pins, but
the larger ones look cute too!
By the time Thanksgiving
comes around,
your banner
will be filled with blessings!
Here's the PDF:
To make clothespins you will need:
Glitter
Aqua Net Hair Spray
Modpodge
and
A Sponge Brush
Instuctions:
Paint one side of the clothespin with Modpodge.
Sprinkle glitter while it's wet.
Allow to dry.
Spray with Aqua Net to keep glitter in place!
More to come!

I am new to your blog and would love to start my own day keeper but am having trouble with some of the pdf links....just sends me to google groups? Is there another way I might get them. Thank you so much and will be following often!!!

Taylors,
Here's that link:

Other Day Keeper Pages can be found in Folder 3.
Google group no longer stores the files, but you can still access ALL of the files using the 2010 Folders in the top right hand side of the blog. Folders 1-3 are for the first and middle part of the year and the folders 3-5 are for the middle and last part of the year. You can do an individual search in each of the folders to find what you are looking for. Luckily we were able to store all the folders in Media Fire!
Hope that helps!

I'm going to use this in my sharing time on Sunday. I've loved all the stuff you do and have printed just about everything. The bingo games are my kids favorites. Are you going to make a bingo game for Christmas?

I have TONS of new Christmas games to post!
I can't wait!
